Healite The First Life Stone
from The Cradle of Life in South Africa
Healite comes from the Cradle of Life in South Africa, where scientists discovered the oldest life form on the planet, a bacteria that is 3 billion years old in a fossilized state embedded in rock (±0.5 Ga). The fossils are called micro fossils because individually they're so tiny they can only be seen in a microscope, but we can often see clusters of them on Healite with the naked eye!
The Human Genome Project estimates 40 of our human genes to be bacterial in origin. The fossil bacteria in Healite may be our ancient ancestor, and it may be this ancient primordial life force still lingering in its skeletal remains that contributes to Healite's amazing energy.
Very near the Cradle of Life is the Cradle of Humankind where the oldest human remains have been found.
It is so non-coincidental that the location of our origin as a species lay in such close proximity to the location of the First Life form on Earth, that it’s enough to send shivers up your spine, and make you wonder so many things…. Like, what is it about this locality that life begins there? What magic lies there, at this magical birthplace - within the ground, the water, the air… within the very rock and stone of the Earth?
The human remains in the Cradle of Mankind are a mere 3 million years old. The bacteria is 3 billion. The planet Earth itself is estimated to be around 4.5 billion years old, so you can see just how ancient this first life is.
What is a billion? 1 billion years is 1000 million years.
3 million = 0.003 billion. This is the age of the First Humans found in the Cradle of Mankind.
The ancient bacteria life are 2.997 billion years older than humankind according to the fossil record. This is the age of the First Life found in the Cradle of Life.
Professor Englebrecht of the University of Pretoria, South Africa, said of the Cradle of Life, “This complex is billions of years older than ‘The Cradle of Mankind’, with a record that extends life’s roots to the most remote reaches of the geological past, containing the remains of the earliest known life forms to appear on Earth.” He goes on, “Here scientists have found evidence of the formation of the first continent on Earth, the Kaapvaal Craton.”
The Kaapvaal craton in South Africa, along with the Pilbara Craton of Western Australia, are the only remaining areas of pristine 3.6-2.5 billion year old crust on Earth. Similarities of rock records from both these cratons suggest that they were once part of an ancient supercontinent that we call Vaalbara. The name Vaalbara is derived from the South African Kaapvaal craton and the West Australian Pilbara craton. These cratons were combined during the time of the Vaalbara supercontinent.
It may have been during the time of the ancient Vaalbara supercontinent that the land was hit with meteorites, potentially bringing bacterial Life with them. Scientists have found evidence of meteorite impact in the Cradle of Life. Combined with finding the rare crystal Troilite in Healite, a Pyrite-like Iron Sulfide mineral that's also found in meteorites, the theory that the First Life on Earth may be extra-terrestrial in origin is strongly supported. This theory is called Panspermia.
Dr. Francis Crick, who discovered the structure of DNA during the 1950s and won the Nobel Prize for it, believed it possible that the seeds of life came from outer space. He believed it so strongly that he risked his good standing in the circles of mainstream science. He published his theory and attracted criticism to himself ever after for it. Crick risked everything he had worked for to get his theory out to the public, it was that important to him because he believed it that much.
Fortunately for Crick he lived long enough to see a discovery in his lifetime by NASA that would support his ideas. In 1984 scientists found a Martian meteorite (a piece of Mars) in Antarctica. After a long 12 year wait, in 1996 they publicly announced they'd found evidence of bacterial life within it.
The theory of Panspermia began with Greek philosopher Anaxagoras who lived around 500 BC. It got some attention in the 1700s and again in the 1800s, but has never been so popular as it is in our modern time in the 1900s and moving into the 2000s, a new millennium with renewed hope for discovering the truth to our origin.
We encourage you to work with Healite with an open mind. It may just have some new information to channel to you. Imagine all it has existed through, being billions of years old, being where it's from, and holding its ancient record of life.
